Soheila Sokhanvari was born in Shiraz, Iran.

She approaches art with multidisciplinary technique, weaving layers of political histories with bizarre, humorous and mysterious narratives that are then left to viewer’s own sensitivity to complete.

Soheila Sokhanvari graduated in 2006 with a postgraduate diploma in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design and MFA Fine Art from Goldsmiths College in 2011. Her work has been shown at ‘TECTONIC,’ The Moving Museum, Dubai (2013) and selected for ‘Young Gods,’ Charlie Smith Gallery (2011). She was one of the UK graduates shortlisted for the Catlin Art prize in 2012 and has been exhibited as one of the top seven new art graduates for exTRAct at GL Strand, Copenhagen (2011). She is a resident artist at the Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge.
